Writing a Teaching Philosophy workshop

When: Monday 6 June, 10.00-4.00
Where: Hobart Centen134, Launceston A023

Register Online 

What is a teaching philosophy? Have you ever thought about writing a teaching philosophy? This workshop will enable participants to learn the basic principles of writing a philosophy which is a self-reflective statement of your beliefs in learning and teaching. This is useful when reflecting on current learning and teaching practices and when applying for promotion, teaching awards and fellowships. 

Stuart Schonell (senior teaching fellow in the Tasmanian School of Business and Economics) will be facilitating this workshop, organised by the Tasmanian branch of HERDSA and TILT. The workshop will be facilitated in both Hobart and Launceston with links to other campuses according to demand. Spaces are limited and preference will be given to current HERDSA members.
